Letter JRL SERIES C 31


Input date

In PGP since 2020


Letter draft or formulary in Judeo-Arabic that makes use of the common Hebrew abbreviation "אחדש׳׳ו" which appears at the opening of many early modern letters. Based on the paleography the dating can be estimated as 18th/19th-century. Because the passage is brief, it only mentions the common formula in which letter writers would initially discuss their most recent correspondence to each other. On both the recto and verso, there are calculations in eastern Arabic numerals which at times appear to be pen trials.
